Geocaching is a worldwide adventure sport which utilizes GPS devices to hide and seek hidden containers called geocaches. (Learn more about geocaching) To get started geocaching, all you need is a GPS receiver and a geocache location. (Learn more about getting started) You can find a nearby geocache location at geocaching.com by entering an address or town into the search box.
The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) strives to advance the sport of geocaching through social activities, public education and promotion of geocaching. (Learn more about the MBGA).

Below is a quick list of events or dates we will be holding events in the next several months. We are planning a fund raising campaign to raise funds for 24 new GPS units that will be used in training sessions with groups. We have seen an increase, year over year, of requests for group training programs and our aged stack of GPS units just don't cut it anymore. We will be offering Cache (Cash) Calendars for sale at all of these events we are planning.

At this evening's board meeting, we discussed our upcoming Christmas Party. As with all things, it's good to discuss and explore things that we do as an organisation and investigate if a change is something to pursue. We discussed the possibility of changing up our annual Christmas Potluck / Party. We would like your feedback.
